So, without further ado, here is the photo that made it to the limelight today, followed by the story behind it –
Little more than a year ago, I went on a trip to Las Vegas with my friends. And this photo was taken on the second day of the trip when we went to visit the famous Hoover Dam.
After we were done sightseeing, we came back to our (rental) car to head back to Vegas and get on with the rest of the vacation plan. All our efforts at trying to open the car doors failed. Yes, we had the key, but for some reason it was of no use. We tried everything from banging the doors to begging to the car to open, but nothing worked.
It was a test of our patience vs. the car’s stubbornness, it looked like. And the car won. Well, almost…
Just as we gave up trying to open the doors, we realized something…we saw that the car parked next to ours was identical to ours. So all this time, instead of trying to open our car, we were trying hard to break into its twin. Twins they were, for sure. Not only were they of the same make, model and color, but also an almost identical license plate…ours was 238-VFD while the other was 236-VFD.
Weird, but true !
P.S: Added quite a few photos to my Photoblog… go check that out !
